    Lovely, clean hotel with a rather small entrance - which I actually missed a few times. Very comfortable hotel in a great location. Walking distance to the shopping precinct, train stations nearby, and to popular tourist attractions. Staff were really helpful. Would definitely stay there...More

    Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
    Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
    and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
    tourists and local business travelers, making it a
    competitive location for ever-new commercial
    structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
    trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
    Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and

    No they do not, or least they didn't when I was there in Oct 2016. I emailed them prior to our departure & they responded very quickly. I believe they do have a laundry service but these are not self service coin machines.
